Foxfire Eventing is a volunteer organization created by youth on behalf of humans and horses. We believe eventing and other types of riding do not have to be elitist activities, and that all horses and humans deserve a chance at happiness. Foxfire believes in second chances, helping others, and giving of time to support what you love.
Our organization fosters a hands-on learning environment for youth and adult volunteers, supports personal growth, promotes the acquisition of soft skills, encourages responsibility, and builds confidence through working with horses.
The horses eat about $500 in high-quality, easily digestible grain per month. They also consume about $500 in high-quality hay.
Sustaining the horses and monitoring to make sure they have the best nutrition we can provide makes all the other programs possible, and of course keeps our equine partners happy and healthy.
Please consider becoming a partner in our projects. By becoming a recurring donor, or making a one-time donation, you guarantee that the horses we help remain healthy, and that our programs continue to be available to serve the community.
Your contribution goes directly to support actual horses.
